Joe Paterno Canceled a Vacation Right After Sandusky Was Initially Investigated

A new story in the upcoming issue of Esquire focuses on what Joe Paterno may or may not have known about the allegations against Jerry Sandusky. In an attempt to determine whether or not Paterno was aware of the original investigation in 1998, Esquire‘s Luke Dittrich searched through old records to try to nail down Paterno’s schedule at the time. He supposedly discovered that Paterno—known for keeping a tight schedule—uncharacteristically cut an event short and canceled a four-day vacation in the days immediately following a police-monitored phone call between Sandusky and the mother of an alleged victim.
